Ravindra Jadeja’s dismissal of Alastair Cook on Day 4 of the fourth Test between India and England in Mumbai marked his 100th scalp in the longest format of the game. At the same time, it also marked the fourth instance in this series when the English skipper was sent packing by the spinner.
Three of the four dismissals, including the one on Sunday, have been through LBWs. In England’s first innings of in Mumbai, Cook was stumped by Parthiv Patel. While he missed out onn a half century in the first innings, getting out at 46, Cook walked having put a more humble 18 runs on the board on Sunday. The English skipper did call for a review and the replays showed that he truly had beaten by both length and pace of the ball.
Ravindra Jadeja has taken 13 wickets so far in the series, making him the second highest wicket-taker after Ravichandran Ashwin. England are in a spot of bother at stumps on Day 4 of the fourth Test. After Virat Kohli’s sensational double century and Jayant Yadav’s maiden century, England had to negate a lead of 231 runs.
First innings centurion Keaton Jennings was dismissed on his very first ball. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow then stabilized the innings but England lost wickets at the end of the day and are thus at 182/6, still trailing India 49 runs with just one day remaining.
